In literacy today we started to look at instructions and why we need them. We looked at all the features of instructions such as imperative verbs and time connectives. The children were given a task of making their own Snowman gift to sell at our Christmas Fayre on Thursday.
They could only follow the instructions and were not allowed to ask for any help. I have to say, I was VERY impressed with our classes! They managed to make some amazing looking Snowman! Apart from tying a few bows, the children finished the task completely independently!
In tomorrows lesson we will be thinking about writing our own instructions and evaluating todays lesson.
What could be changed to help the reader?
Could anything be added to the instructions to help?
Was everything completely clear?
Have a look at our photos and keep a lookout for these amazing Snowmen on sale at our Christmas Fayre!
